A steering group meeting was held today. It was seeking to explore how and if day care provision could be provided in some sort of community / council partnership. I fear that this will be a particularly difficult and complex issue to resolve given the vulnerable people involved and the level of responsibility that will be required to maintain this facility. What we all have to reflect on the families involved and how they are affected.
I arranged for some early meetings between the community and the Executive Director for Adult Services which opened the door for exploring community based provision. What is clear is that the current model will not continue as the current provider does not wish to renew this contract.
